The European Union Film Festival (EUFF) returns once more to selected Golden Screen Cinemas. Now in its 19th year in Malaysia and one of the biggest international film festivals in the country, this much-anticipated event promises to showcase the dynamism, breadth and innovation of contemporary European cinema, as well as the cultural diversity of Europe, with critically-acclaimed films from across the continent.

This year, EUFF have added one more city to the festival tour – Johor Bahru. The European Union Film Festival will take place at selected Golden Screen Cinemas outlets in Klang Valley (18 – 28 October), Georgetown (1-7 November), Johor Bahru (15-18 November), Kuching (22-28 November) and Kota Kinabalu (6-12 December).

Since its first edition in 2000, the EUFF has brought together film enthusiasts, students, families and even people looking for their first foreign-language film experience.   Spanning animation, drama, romance, comedy, adventure, children's film and documentary, the wide ranging programme is a testament to Europe's continued creativity and diversity and has something for everyone's tastes.

"Europe has never been just one, but many. Through EUFF, we hope not just to promote Europe's cultural diversity but also diversity at the centre of international cultural relations, as this is an important part of the EU's role as a global actor," said H.E. Maria Castillo Fernandez, Ambassador and Head of the EU Delegation to Malaysia.

"We hope that these movies not only entertain, inspire and teach us about European culture but also open people's eyes to how both European and Malaysian people enjoy cultural diversity," she added.

Some of the films are collaborations or joint-productions between European countries. For example, the film Loving Vincent, a beautifully-rendered animation about the life of artist Vincent Van Gogh in the style of his paintings, is a joint-production of Poland, the Netherlands and France.
